Check with your local power company for rebates or offers. I had them come out last year and do an audit of our house to see where we had issues. I had old windows and no floor insulation.

I had the floor insulated under the house for $2000 and the the electric company paid $1000 of it. They gave me $6 a square foot for glass or up to 50% of the cost of the window.

As an example our slider is 9 x 8 = 72 square feet
$6 x 72 sq feet = $432 is the max they would pay for the slider.

In the end I insulated the floor and windows for about $2700 after all the rebates. Me and buddy did all the windows. Since I had my house up to snuff I then put in a new heat pump and air handler and got $1500 back from the electric company on top of the Train rebates.

We installed Jeld-Win windows.

I couldn't bring myself to buy super expensive windows with the same ratings.

Ryan, If you PM me your sizes I can order them with my discount.

They have the woodgrain vinyl (faux wood) but you cn also do a simple white. I have found the Belmont series, replacement window dual sash best you can get were all under $400 for regular sizes. Some lower than 300. They also comply with the $1500 tax credit (if that is still going on) Also, they have a 5 year warranty that includes labor on top of their lifetime guarantee. And their cheapest Alliance window is better than any Pella or Jeld-Wyn or Anderson vinyl window out there.

Way cool. Would I then need to find an independent installer? Do they make the Belmont in triple pane? I need to get back on their site. I'll see if I can get my wife to email me the dimensions.
